    Can My Teenager Get Arrested for Juuling in Connecticut?
    • Juuling has been called “the iPhone of e-cigarettes.”
    • It is a violation of federal law to sell vaping devices to anyone under 21.

    What is a Juul?

    A Juul is a type of e-cigarette, popular among young people, that works by creating an aerosol to activate the ingredients. Use of a Juul is commonly known as “juuling” or “vaping.”

    Is it illegal to Juul in Connecticut?

    Under Connecticut General Statues § 19a-342a, it is a criminal infraction to vape in a variety of places including school buildings while student activities are being conducted, college dormitories, restaurants, and retail stores.

    Is it illegal to buy a Juul?

    Only if you’re under 18. As the best Connecticut criminal lawyers can explain, Connecticut criminal law CGS § 53-344b prohibits anyone under the age of 18 from buying or possessing an e-cigarette, like a Juul.

    Is it illegal to sell a Juul?

    Possibly. If your business sells Juuls or other e-cigarettes, you must verify the purchaser’s age from a driver’s license, passport, or ID card. If you fail to do so and you sell to a minor (someone under 18), then you can be in violation of the law.
